For clarity, the only F unit to wear the Daylight scheme was Cotton Belt's FP7, and it had been repainted in scarlet & gray while still in Cotton Belt service, before it was leased to the SP.

The first unit painted scarlet & gray was E7A #6002, which was repainted from the Daylight scheme in July 1958 at the LA General Shops. After acceptance by upper management, repainting of passenger units began, and wasn't completed until the early Sixties.

Passenger car paint was standardized on the Simulated Stainless Steel colors (and, solid dark gray on head end equipment) during the same period, although many cars were never repainted before retirement.
